San Francisco’s famous Anchor Porter brand is made in one of the smallest and most traditional breweries in the world by the brewers of Anchor Steam Beer. Our old-fashioned Porter is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. We use 100% malted barley, generous amounts of fresh, whole hops, entirely natural carbonation and a simple, natural brewing process which is like no other in the world. The deep black color, the thick, creamy head and the intensely rich flavor of Anchor Porter, made in San Francisco since 1974, have earned this delicious and unique brew a worldwide reputation for outstanding quality. It is aesthetically pleasing and wholly superior in every respect.

Paladares (135) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 7, 2015
Botella. Negra opaca. Mucha espuma. Aroma principalmente a caramelo con toque a higos. Agradable. En boca entra amarga y con cuerpo para acabar tornando a algo más achocolatado y dulce. De hecho el caramelo sólo sale en el postgusto y le da un toque muy interesante. Muy rica.

Sweetish-malty, roasty, fruity aroma of raisins, dates, treacle, dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Sweetish-malty, roasty and fruity taste of raisins, prunes, treacle and dark chocolate, followed by a short, slightly bitter and lightly roasty finish with notes of coffee.

GTAEgeek (1584) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2015
12 oz. bottle, brought to Joe’s Halloween party by Daniel. Pours very dark brown, nearly black, with a brown, huge, foamy head. The nose is big, roasted coffee, caramel, bitter chocolate, and some earthiness. Sweet, syrupy, and malty up front, with a strong bitterness that balances out the flavor pretty well. Heavy body, creamy, lightly acidic, and hard. This is a very solid porter.

Pours a dark brown with chocolate shake colored head. Kind of tastes a little like a chocolate malted too, but not heavy on chocolate flavor, just notes. A little molasses in there, some bitterness too. Good beer.
